Lygia Pape: The Skin of AllLygia Pape: The Skin of All

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Susanne Gaensheimer, Isabelle Malz. Text by Pauline Bachmann, Briony Fer, Paulo Herkenhoff, Cécile Huber, Isabelle Malz, Paula Pape, Luiza Proenca, Tania Rivera, Michelle Sommer, Felipo Scovino.

Cofounder of Neo-Concrete art in Brazil, Lygia Pape (1927–2004) helped spearhead the transition of two-dimensional abstract art into three-dimensional sculpture and sensory, participatory fabric works, alongside Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Clark. This volume appraises her career, from her early Concrete art of the 1940s to her famous Book of Creation and films, and includes documents published here for the first time.
Pape's work spans five decades and two repressive dictatorships in Brazil (1937–45 and 1964–85), as well as an incredibly fertile period of cultural and economic awakening. Across these historical eras, Pape developed an abstract-concrete formal language as well as experimental explorations of space that also accommodated poetic manifestations of subtle resistance. This 448-page volume describes an arc of continual creative and political engagement, with a consistent emphasis on the affirmations of the sensual and the shared.

Text by Alexander Alberro. Interview with Paula Pape, Paulo Herkenhoff, Ferreira Gullar.

A founding member of Brazil’s Neoconcrete movement, Lygia Pape (1927–2004) pioneered a unique approach to abstraction and valued art that favored the primacy of viewers’ sensorial experiences. This catalog, published on the occasion of Lygia Pape’s solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth New York in fall 2018, brings together a variety of works from the artist’s rich oeuvre, from sculptures, prints and paintings to installations and films. It focuses particularly on the series Tecelares (1952–59), Ttéias (2003) and Amazoninos (1989–2003). Designed by Damien Saatdjian, the publication includes a 2009 conversation between Pape’s daughter Paula Pape, curator Paulo Herkenhoff and poet Ferreira Gullar, as well as a newly commissioned text by art historian Alexander Alberro that explores multisensorial art with a focus on the works surveyed here.

Published by Hauser & Wirth Publishers.
Text by Briony Fer, Daniel Birnbaum.

A founding member of Brazil's Neo-Concrete movement, Lygia Pape (1927–2004) made art that favored the primacy of the viewer's sensorial experience. Pape's geometric abstractions explore rich territory through sculpture, drawing, engraving, filmmaking and installation. This publication brings together works spanning 1955 to 2001. The precise incised lines of Pape's Tecelares woodcut prints and drawings of the 1950s and '60s marry pure geometry with organic patterns. Her subsequent Ttéia installations (begun in the late 1970s and continued throughout her career) present captivating explorations of geometry, space and materiality. Installation views and detail shots of these works complement texts by Briony Fer and Daniel Birnbaum, two ardent followers of Pape's work.

Lygia Pape: Magnetized SpaceLygia Pape: Magnetized Space

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by María Luisa Blanco, Manuel J. Borja-Villel, Teresa Velásquez. Text by Ivana Bentes, Guy Brett, Lauro Cavalcanti, et al.

Lygia Pape (1927–2004) was a founding member of Brazil's Neo-Concrete movement. Her early work developed out of European geometric abstraction (Concrete art), but Pape expanded these idioms, drawing on the visual traditions of her native country. Her paintings, sculptures, books and films have made a defining contribution to Brazil's artistic identity, as well as to the field of artist's books. Pape was closely affiliated with artists such as Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica and enjoyed comparable prominence and acclaim in Brazil. Outside of Brazil, however, Pape has remained less well known than her contemporaries, until the Reina Sofia and Serpentine Gallery's landmark show of 2011–12. The catalogue for that exhibition—the first English-language monograph on the artist—quickly went out of print and is now a rarity. This expanded, revised edition of that catalogue reveals her oeuvre for an English-speaking audience for the first time.
